With the ath5k patch I posted, and the ath9k patches that Felix
posted recently in response to my bug reports, I've had good
luck with ath9k and ath5k.

I also pulled in the slub cmpxcg fix that fixes fatal bugs
for compiles for something earlier than Pentium-II processors.

Hopefully -rc7 will be out shortly (which will contain the slub
fix, and if we're lucky..the ath9k and ath5k fixes too).

I don't test with any other wifi nics..just ath5k and ath9k.

I've mostly been testing virtual stations...will crank up some
ath9k APs shortly...
